“I think it’s great. I learned that I like to live, I like to make love, I really do love somebody, I love flowers, I love the sky, I like bright colors, I like animals. [LSD] also showed me unhappy things — that I was stubborn, selfish, unreasonable, mean, that I hurt other people.”
Donyale Luna (August 31, 1945 – May 17, 1979) was an American model and cover girl. She also appeared in several films, in Camp (1965) by Andy Warhol, Qui êtes-vous, Polly Maggoo? (1966) by William Klein, as Groucho Marx’s companion in Otto Preminger’s Skidoo (1968), and most notably as Oenothea in Federico Fellini’s Satyricon (1970) and as the title character in Salomé (1972), a film by director Carmelo Bene.
She was born Peggy Ann Freeman in Detroit, Michigan. She attended the prestigious Cass Technical High School. Her parents were Peggy and Nathaniel Freeman; her mother killed her father, who was reportedly abusive, when Donyale was 18. Luna’s mother wanted her to become a nurse.
Despite the parentage stated on her birth certificate, she insisted that her biological father was a man with the surname Luna and that her mother was Indigenous Mexican and of Afro-Egyptian lineage. According to the model, one of her grandmothers was reportedly an Irish former actress who married a black interior decorator. Whether any of this background is true is uncertain. In the mid 1960s, a relative described Luna as being “a very weird child, even from birth, living in a wonderland, a dream.”
After being discovered by the photographer David McCabe, she moved from Detroit to New York City to pursue a modeling career. In January 1965, a sketch of Luna appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. She became the first African American model to appear on the cover of a Vogue magazine, the March 1966 British issue, shot by British photographer David Bailey.
According to The New York Times, she was under exclusive contract to the photographer Richard Avedon for a year at the beginning of her career.
An article in Time magazine published on 1 April 1966, “The Luna Year”, described her as "a new heavenly body who, because of her striking singularity, promises to remain on high for many a season. Donyale Luna, as she calls herself, is unquestionably the hottest model in Europe at the moment. She is only 20, a Negro, hails from Detroit, and is not to be missed if one reads Harper’s Bazaar, Paris Match, Britain’s Queen, the British, French or American editions of Vogue.
In 1967, the mannequin manufacturer Adel Rootstein created a mannequin in Luna’s image, a follow-up to the company’s Twiggy mannequin of 1966.
Luna appeared in a nude photo layout in the April 1975 issue of Playboy; the photographer was Luigi Cazzaniga.
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Luna appeared in several films.
She appeared in several movies produced by Andy Warhol. These included Screen Test: Donyale Luna (1964), in which critic Wayne Koestenbaum described Luna as “pure diva, presenting a delicious mobile excess of mannerism”; Camp (1965), and Donyale Luna (1967), a 33-minute color film in which the model starred as Snow White.
In Federico Fellini’s Fellini Satyricon (1970), she portrayed the witch Oenothea, “who,” according to one commentator, “in a trade-off with a wizard long ago ended up with fire between her legs. And it’s real fire too, because Fellini shows us a scene in which a long line of foolish-looking peasants wait with unlit torches at Oenothea’s bed. When their time comes, each devoutly places his torch between her legs to her sex, and, Poof.”
Luna also appeared in The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus, the Otto Preminger comedy Skidoo (in which she was featured as the mistress of crime boss “God”, who was portrayed by Groucho Marx), and the British documentary Tonite Let’s All Make Love in London.
Luna starred as the title character in the 1972 Italian film Salomé, by director Carmelo Bene.
According to the journalist Judy Stone, who wrote a profile of Luna for The New York Times in 1968, the model was “secretive, mysterious, contradictory, evasive, mercurial, and insistent upon her multiracial lineage — exotic, chameleon strands of Indigenous-Mexican, Indonesian, Irish, and, last but least escapable, African.” A London magazine (The Sunday Times Magazine, article by Harold Carlton) hailed her as "the completely New Image of the Negro woman. Fashion finds itself in an instrumental position for changing history, however slightly, for it is about to bring out into the open the veneration, the adoration, the idolization of the Negro … "
When Stone asked her about whether her appearances in Hollywood films would benefit the cause of black actresses, Luna answered, “If it brings about more jobs for Mexicans, Asians, Native Americans, Africans, groovy. It could be good, it could be bad. I couldn’t care less.”
In the mid 1960s, Luna was married to an actor for 10 months. Later she reportedly was engaged to the Austrian-born Swiss actor Maximilian Schell, to an unnamed Danish photographer, and to Georg Willing, a German actor who appeared in European horror films (such as 1970’s “Necropolis”) and with the Living Theatre.
Around 1969 Luna was also romantically involved with German actor Klaus Kinski. Both posed together on several photographs. The relationship ended when Kinski asked her entourage to leave his house in Rome: he was concerned that their drug use could damage his career.
Luna married the Italian photographer Luigi Cazzaniga. In 1977 they had a child: Dream Cazzaniga.
In the late 1960s, in an interview, Luna expressed her fondness for LSD: “I think it’s great. I learned that I like to live, I like to make love, I really do love somebody, I love flowers, I love the sky, I like bright colors, I like animals. [LSD] also showed me unhappy things — that I was stubborn, selfish, unreasonable, mean, that I hurt other people.”
Luna died in Rome, Italy, in a clinic, after an accidental drug overdose.—Wikipedia
“I’m the least fashionista person in the world. I’m part of this business because I enter a room like a silent actress, and listen to the photographer, the art director, the client.”
Carmen Dell’Orefice (born June 3, 1931) is an American model and actress, born in New York, NY. She is known within the fashion industry for being the world’s oldest working model as of the Spring/Summer 2012 season. She covered Vogue at the mere age of 15, and has been modelling ever since.
Carmen’s parents were Italian and Hungarian. They were constantly breaking up and getting back together. Because of this, Carmen lived in foster homes and sometimes with other relatives.
In 1942, Carmen reunited with her mother and moved to New York City. At the age of 13, while riding a bus to ballet class, she was approached to model by the wife of photographer Herman Landschoff. Her test photos, taken at Jones Beach, were a “flop” according to Carmen.4 Her godfather though introduced her to Vogue, where Carmen signed a contract for $7.50 per hour in 1946 at age 15. Carmen became a favoured model of photographer Erwin Blumenfeld who took her first Vogue cover in 1947. She appears in the December 15, 1947 issue of US Vogue as Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and Cinderella along with supermodel Dorian Leigh, actors Ray Bolger and Jose Ferrer.
Despite modeling, Carmen and her mother were poor. They had no telephone and Vogue sent runners to their apartment to let Carmen know about modeling jobs. She roller-skated to assignments to save bus fares. Carmen was so malnourished that famed fashion photographers Horst P. Horst and Cecil Beaton had to pin back dresses and stuff her body with tissue. Carmen and her mother were also accomplished seamstresses and made extra money making clothes. One of their customers was Dorian Leigh. Carmen would later become best friends with Dorian’s younger sister, model Suzy Parker. Together they would be bridesmaids at Dorian’s second wedding to Roger Mehle in 1948.
In 1947, Carmen got a raise to $10–$25 per hour. She appeared on the October 1947 cover of Vogue, at age 16, one of the youngest Vogue cover models ever (along with Niki Taylor, Brooke Shields, and Monika Schnarre). Carmen was also on the November 1948 cover of Vogue. She worked with the most famous fashion photographers of the era including Irving Penn, Gleb Derujinsky, Francesco Scavullo, Norman Parkinson, and Richard Avedon. Carmen was photographed by Melvin Sokolsky for Harper’s Bazaar in 1960. The iconic image titled Carmen Las Meninas is world famous and has been collected internationally. Sokolsky also photographed Carmen for the classic Vanity Fair Lingerie campaign in which Carmen obscures her face with her hand. She also became Salvador Dalí’s muse.
Despite early successes at a very young age, modeling agent Eileen Ford refused to represent her and Vogue lost interest in her. After doctors prescribed shots to start puberty, she instead started working for catalogs and lingerie, making $300 per hour. It was then that she joined Ford in 1953.
Carmen met and married Bill Miles in the early 1950s. Bill would pick up her weekly modeling checks at her agency and only give her $50 of them. They had a daughter, Laura, and divorced soon after.
In 1958 she met photographer Richard Heimann and married him only six months later. She decided to retire and he promptly left her.
Her third marriage was to a young architect, Richard Kaplan, in the mid-1960s. Their marriage lasted nine years. Desperate, she decided to return to modeling in 1978 and continues to work to this day. In the 1990s and 2000s, she modeled for Isaac Mizrahi’s clothing line at Target, as well as Cho Cheng and Rolex. Carmen is featured regularly in their advertising campaigns appearing in Vogue, W and Harper’s Bazaar.
In the late 1980s, Carmen was engaged to television talk-show host David Susskind. He died before they were married.
In 1993, a neighbor introduced her to Norman F. Levy, who was Bernard Madoff’s best friend. He was her boyfriend for several years.
In June 2011, Carmen celebrated her 80th birthday.8On July 19, 2011 she was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of the Arts London, in recognition of her contribution to the fashion industry. The university also presented a dedicated retrospective exhibition curated by illustrator and long-term friend David Downton, showing Carmen’s Vogue covers, some of her finest modelling moments, and photographs from her personal archives.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Carmen lost most of her money in the stock market. She was forced to auction off her famous modeling photographs from the 1940s-1980s through Sotheby’s.
In 1994, with what little money she had left, and with money from boyfriend Norman Levy, she invested with Madoff. For twelve years, Ruth and Bernie Madoff and Carmen and Norman Levy were a “foursome”, traveling and partying together on lavish yachts.
Levy died in 2005, at age 93, and Madoff was the executor of his will, which had $244 million in assets, according to Carmen. Madoff further used this money to lure in about 13,500 individuals and charities. She continued to regularly have dinner with the Madoffs after Levy’s death.
In December 2008 a 68-year-old friend, who invested her life savings with Madoff, telephoned Carmen to inform her that she too had been swindled. Carmen said, “For the second time in my life, I’ve lost all of my life savings.”.
In April 2009, Carmen was interviewed for Vanity Fair magazine’s story “Madoff’s World”. Photographs of Carmen and photographs she took of Madoff appear in this article.—Wikipedia

‘My great hope is that when the film ends, these Murias will no longer seem exotic strangers to you but your friends – fellow human beings.’
Arne Sucksdorff (February 3, 1917, Stockholm – May 4, 2001) was a Swedish movie director, considered one of cinema’s greatest documentary filmmakers. He was particularly celebrated for his visually poetic and scenic nature documentaries. His works include Pojken i trädet (The Boy in the Tree) and the Academy Award-winning Människor i Stad (Symphony of a City).
Perhaps Sucksdorff’s most widely admired work was the internationally acclaimed Det Stora Äventyret (1953) (The Great Adventure) about a year in the outdoors told in semidocumentary fashion from the viewpoint of a farmboy. It is noted for its remarkable photography and authentic scenes of nature, and its appeal to children for its story of domesticated otters. Sucksdorff also appeared as an actor in this film, portraying the father, while his real-life son is an actor as well. The film won the International Prize at the 1954 Cannes Film Festival2 and the Big Silver Medal (Documentaries and Culture Films) at the 4th Berlin International Film Festival.
In the early ’60s, Sucksdorff moved to Rio de Janeiro, where he taught cinema at the film school and continued making documentaries, such as Mitt hem är Copacabana (My Home Is Copacabana).
In later life, he became an outspoken critic of deforestation and a fervent environmentalist.
Sucksdorff’s last film was the 1971 feature Cry of the Penguins (also titled Mr. Forbush and the Penguins), starring John Hurt and Hayley Mills.
He died of pneumonia in 2001 at his birthplace, Stockholm, Sweden.—Wikipedia

Willard Van Dyke
“I didn’t believe you could change the world by still photography.”
Willard Van Dyke (5 December 1906 – 23 January 1986) was an American filmmaker and photographer who believed that photography could have a major influence on the world.
Willard Van Dyke apprenticed with Edward Weston in 1928 and co-founded the Group f/64 in 1932 with Imogen Cunningham, Ansel Adams, and Weston. The group believed in sharp-focus, “straight photography.”
In 1935, Van Dyke moved to New York City and began making documentary films with the belief that films “could change the world.” His name soon became synonymous with social documentary in the U.S. His images of cottonfields, steelmills and industrial towns, and his portraits of unemployed factory workers and their families, provide an invaluable chronicle of those years and have become timeless examples of cinematic art. He was a cinematographer on Pare Lorentz’s The River (1938).
The City, his 1938 collaboration with Ralph Steiner, ran for two years at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. During World War II, he produced propaganda movies for the government. In 1948, Van Dyke made the documentary film The Photographer about Edward Weston.
He successfully fought attempts to blacklist him during the 1950s. Van Dyke was director of the Department of Film at the Museum of Modern Art from 1965 to 1974.
In 1967 he was a member of the jury at the 17th Berlin International Film Festival.
In 1960 he was nominated for an Academy Award in the Category of Best Short Subject, Live Action Subjects for: Skyscraper (1960); shared with Shirley Clarke and Irving Jacoby.
In 1978, Van Dyke was awarded The George Eastman Award, given by George Eastman House for distinguished contribution to the art of film.—Wikipedia

Please update information about the actor Mohanlal
‘I find acting akin to entering another person’s body….(it) is a bit like meditation. It is a lot of practice too.’
Mohanlal Vishwanathan Nair (born 21 May 1960), known mononymously as Mohanlal, was born to father Viswanathan Nair and Mother Santhakumari in Pathanamthitta district, Kerala, India, and was raised in his father’s house at Mudavanmugal in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum). He graduated with a Bachelors in Commerce from Mahatma Gandhi College in Thiruvananthapuram.
Mohanlal made his acting debut in ‘Thiranottam’ (1978) but the film ran into trouble with the censors and was never released. He followed that by a role as the lead antagonist in his first release Manjil Virinja Pookkal (Flowers That Bloomed in the Mist) in 1980. He started his career playing largely antagonistic parts. Slowly, he began to be offered leading roles by the early 1980s. He soon began to widen his repertoire by playing characters of various shades varying from the comic to the tragic. By the late 1980s, he had firmly cemented his reputation as one of the biggest stars of the regional film industry of Kerala. But the actor was largely unknown outside the state.
The first film outside Kerala in which he starred was ‘The Duo’ (1996) by Mani Ratnam. The role got him considerable recognition outside the state. Later, ‘Vaanaprastham/The Last Dance’ (1999) by Shaji N Karun, gave the actor international exposure by being selected in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival. The film, in which he played a Kathakali actor, also won him the Indian National Film Award for the Best Actor. His first Hindi film was ‘Company’ (2002) by Ram Gopal Varma, which made him popular among North Indian audiences.
Mohanlal is regarded as one of the finest actors in Indian cinema today and is a cultural icon. In 2001, the Government of India honoured him with the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour, for his contributions to Indian cinema. He has won four Indian National Film Awards — two Best Actor Awards, one Special Jury Award for acting, and one Award for Best Film as producer along with six Kerala State Film Awards for Best Actor.

Please add Peggy Moffitt to the cast of Blow-Up (1966) and Who Are You, Polly Maggoo? (1966).
“I was trained as an actress, dancer and in theatrical arts. I understood lighting and design. I could find characters in his [Rudi Gernreich] script. I never held back. It was the height of freedom and liberation.”
Peggy Moffitt (born in California in 1939) was during the 1960s a premier model and muse for the late fashion designer Rudi Gernreich. She developed a signature style that featured heavy, Kubuki-like makeup and an asymmetrical hair cut.
Though her unique look has now become iconic of the 60s fashion scene, Peggy started out pursuing a career in film, beginning with an uncredited role in the 1955 film You’re Never Too Young. As a model, she developed a signature style, including false eyelashes and heavy eye makeup, drawing on Japanese Kabuki theater. Her hairstyle, a asymmetrical bowl cut, created by Vidal Sassoon, became known as the “five point”. Her unique look became an icon of the 1960s fashion scene. In 1964, she made international headlines when she was photographed by her husband William Claxton wearing Gernreich’s famous topless monokini bathing suit.
After Gernreich’s death, she retained legal rights to his designs and arranged for his designs to be displayed in an art exhibition. She also collaborated with Marylou Luther and photographer Claxton to release a comprehensive book chronicling Gernreich’s designs.
The Chicago band The Handcuffs feature the song “Peggy Moffitt” on their debut album Model for a Revolution, with famous photographs of the revolutionary model on the CD cover. Boyd Rice and Giddle Partridge released a limited edition vinyl called Going Steady With Peggy Moffitt in 2008.—Wikipedia
“He [Miles Davis] wanted me to go home with him. Such a dirty old man.”
Eva Monica Zetterlund (born Nilsson 20 September 1937 in Hagfors, died 12 May 2005) was a Swedish singer and actress.
Zetterlund was a singer particularly noted for her jazz work. She began by learning the classic jazz songs from radio and records, initially not knowing the language and what they sang about in English. She went for the melody, rhythm and feeling.
Hit songs include “Sakta vi gå genom stan” (Swedish cover of “Walking My Baby Back Home”; in Swedish a tribute to Stockholm town), “Visa från Utanmyra”, “Sista jäntan”, “Trubbel”, “Gröna små äpplen” (“Little Green Apples”), “Monicas vals” (“Waltz for Debby”), “Stick iväg, Jack!” (“Hit the Road Jack”), “Att angöra en brygga”, “Var blev ni av”, “Måne över Stureplan” (cover on Sting’s “Moon Over Bourbon Street”) and “Under vinrankan!”, among many, many others. She also interpreted the works of many Swedish national singer-songwriters such as Evert Taube, Olle Adolphson and Povel Ramel, and all through her life interpreted the works of international and American jazz musicians/song writers. She worked with some of the greatest international jazz names including Louis Armstrong, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Steve Kuhn and Quincy Jones, and in the Scandinavian jazz world with people like Georg Riedel, Egil Johansen, Arne Domnérus, Svend Asmussen and Jan Johansson.
In 1964 she recorded the critically acclaimed jazz album Waltz for Debby with Bill Evans, a record she herself described as “the best I’ve done” and was most proud of. Her long career also included the song “En gång i Stockholm” (“Winter City”); a jazz ballad with which she represented Sweden in the 1963 Eurovision Song Contest. She finished last, however, (mainly because the song genre was not suitable for the competition) and scored the infamous null points, but still managed to remain successful in Sweden. Her collaboration with the comic duo Hasseåtage (in the 1960s and 70s) eventually led to a stage career in revues and films. Memorable are her parts in films Att angöra en brygga, Äppelkriget and Jan Troell’s Utvandrarna (aka The Emigrants; with Liv Ullman and Max von Sydow in the leads) for which Zetterlund received a Guldbagge award for Best Supporting Actress. She appeared in more than 20 films and television series throughout her life.
She suffered from severe scoliosis, and as a result was forced to retire from performing in 1999. She made her last lengthy official tour in 1997, and gave one of her last concerts at Sweden’s Hultsfred Festival (which usually is a festival for pop and rock bands; but she participated anyway – and the young rock audience loved her). In the last years of her life she used a wheelchair because of her scoliosis. On 12 May 2005, she died following an accidental fire in her apartment in Stockholm.—Wikipedia

“The thing about John [Cassavetes], in terms of both ‘Shadows’ and all the things he did, it seems to me was that he was always in a state of discovery, which I think is what love is really about.”
Lelia Goldoni (born 1 October 1936) is an American actress who appeared in a number of motion pictures and television shows starting in the late-1940s, beginning with uncredited cameo roles in Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s House of Strangers (1949) and John Huston’s We Were Strangers (1949).
She costarred on the episode “Fair Exchange” of the British television series Danger Man (1964) with Patrick MacGoohan.
She is best known for co-starring in John Cassavetes’s groundbreaking film Shadows (1959) and playing the best friend of Ellen Burstyn’s character in Martin Scorsese’s Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore (1974).—Wikipedia

Barbara Bedford (19 July 1900—25 October 1981) was born in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin and was educated in Chicago, where she graduated from Lake View High School.
She felt the urge to appear on the silver screen at that time and immediately set out for Hollywood, where she impressed Lambert Hillyer, William S. Hart’s director, by her unusual beauty and charm. Despite the fact that she had no stage or screen experience, he cast her for a role in Hart’s The Cradle of Courage (1920). In 1925 she appeared opposite Hart in his final film, “Tumbleweeds” a key western of the silent period. She starred in the 1926 silent film Old Loves and New and Mockery with Lon Chaney the following year.
Her career declining after the switch to sound, she signed with MGM in 1936 to play bit and extra parts. Her last known film appearance was in 1945.
She died in Jacksonville, Florida on October 25, 1981.—Wikipedia

This pert, delicate-looking French dish with the piled-high blonde hairdo was a one-time threat to the sexy, kittenish pedestal ‘Brigitte Bardot’ stood on during the 1950s. Born on April 4, 1927, the lithe and luscious Dany Robin trained as a ballerina as a child and eventually made her way to the Opera de Paris. At age 19, however, she opted for a movie career. Studying at the Paris Conservatoire, she made her screen debut in Lunegarde (1946) and grew quickly in popularity as a sensual but virginal heroine of light, fluffy comedy with such pictures as Monelle (1948) (Monelle), Naughty Martine (1947) (Naughty Martine), Frou-Frou (1955), and Mimi Pinson (1958) endearing her to Gallic audiences. Working for such legendary directors as ‘Marcel Carne’ and René Clair, Dany first turned heads in the latter’s film Le silence est d’or (1947) (Man About Town) opposite French sensation Maurice Chevalier. Though most of her films were produced in her homeland, she took in international pictures from time to time in the 1960s, appearing in the British sex comedy Waltz of the Toreadors (1962) opposite Peter Sellers and the innocuous Connie Francis starrer Follow the Boys (1963) here in the U.S. Her last film would be in Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller Topaz (1969), also an American production. Divorced from French heartthrob Georges Marchal, she married producer Michael Sullivan and retired. On May 25, 1995, Dany was tragically killed in a fire that occurred inside her Paris apartment. She was 68.—IMDb
